Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Whole Lot of Lovely Huge Parisian Bag. Ish….
OK so I will totally admit that this bag doesn’t look particularly French at all, but there is a very good reason for the title.
A few weeks ago, I was invited by one of my French team members to join her and her team in Paris for the weekend. We were actually in a tiny little village called Avernes and it was stunning. But I flew in and out of Paris, so I’m working with that as a title.
I didn’t actually make this bag that I’m sharing in the video, BUT I made a version of it that closed a little differently and I show you how to do that in the video.
I had to be careful with how much luggage I carried, I wanted to just have a cabin bag, so I decided to take the Fresh Florals DSP pack with me and the Lots of Love stamp set, along with a bunch of matching ribbons. Sophie (my leader out there) brought the relevant inks and blocks for us, and we had a lot of fun!
But this project is created in exactly the same way, but instead of closing it around the top, it has handles. Super cute!
I hope you have a go, do practice first. With 2 pieces of paper with very similar score lines, it’s possible to go wrong. Our ladies in France all got it right, but there were a few twists and turns of the paper before confidently snipping pieces away!
Remember you need 2 pieces of paper and you cut and score both exactly the same way.
DSP – 12 x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5cm)
Score on the FIRST side at 3, 11″ (7.5, 28cm)
Score on the SECOND side at 3, 10″ (7.5, 25cm)
Black panel – 4-1/4 x 4-1/4″ (10.5 x 10.5cm)
Whisper White panel – 4 x 4″ (10 x 10cm)
FINISHED DIMENSIONS – 3 x 8 x 7″ (7.5 x 20.5 x 17.5cm)
